I wonder what you are seeing as a curtain -- the photograph is a little confusing because of the reflection shown in the left side of the mirror. What you are looking at is a tub with no shower head -- the tile pattern, which I think is what you are reading as a curtain is the end wall above the tub -- it is a tile mural pattern by Ann Sacks - part of the Sakura line. It is tagged with the URL in the image you looked at originally. There is a mirror above the splash that butts into the tile on the wall. Let me know if I can provide any more information -- sorry for the confusion in the image.

Hi -
The vanity goes to the floor -- it is set on a 3.5" recessed base. The cabinet maker was:

William Guba & Associates
2534 Magnolia Street, Suite B
Oakland, CA 94607 -
or Call for an appointment: 510 832-2822
They do lovely work -- and have a really thorough shop drawing process so you can be sure you are getting the design that you want. They also can do the installation. I recommend them highly.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Ann Sacks sakura tile mural extends the Japanese character of the original house into the master bath. The subtle transition from old to new in this house "is a quiet merging of melodies," says Schwabe.
